Imply Hybrid overview

Imply Hybrid (formerly Imply Cloud) gives you the easiest way to get started and grow with Imply.

With Imply Hybrid, Imply is deployed completely within your own AWS account, using a dedicated virtual private network (VPC). This gives you full control over your machines and your data. Imply hosts the control plane (for example, Imply Manager) for your cluster in a separate VPC within Imply's account. The VPC created in your AWS account is linked through a peering connection with the Manager VPC in Imply's account.
